Each part of the Carbonear logo has a meaning.
The icon is four Cs merged and overlapped. This represents community and partnerships
The white space in the center represents Carbonear being the heart or hub of the area.
The different degrees of colour as the Cs overlap have a very nuclear and medical feel.
By adding the tiny green square, the icon also represents growth.
The font is a clean, interesting and unique font.
The gold, inspired by Sheila NaGeira's hair and the warm sunny personality of Carbonear, has been named "Sunshine Smile"
Carbonear's Coat of Arms was developed through the Canadian Heraldic Authority. An historic document was presented by the Lieutenant Governor the Honourable James J. McGrath, representative of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, to Carbonear Mayor William Butt on July 8, 1990, conferring the coat of arms and the flag on the town.
The elements in the design have been carefully chosen to recognize the heritage of the town and the many accomplishments of its citizens. The blue wavy chevron indicates the sea, while the fish represent the fishery, the industry on which Carbonear was founded, and the prosperity derived from that industry. The rose and the shamrock are representative of the English and Irish races which predominate in Carbonear and reflect the pink, white and green colors of an historic Newfoundland flag. The young woman's head represents the legendary Princess Sheila NaGeira of Down, the ship in the crest represents both the ship-building and sea borne trade that carried Carbonearans all over the Atlantic, the Caribbean and the Mediterranean. The ship flies a pennant charged with the red maple leaf of Canada, while the motto ribbon is decorated with the provincial flower of Newfoundland. The motto: " As Loved Our Fathers" is derived from the last verse of Sir Cavendish Boyle's Ode to Newfoundland our provincial anthem.
